If I will be asked what I truly desire right now, it is quality time with my family. We lack that. We often have no time for each other. I, too, am guilty. Yeah. I just wish we could be together and spend real time with each other, share and listen to each other’s stories, sing songs, dream dreams, exchange smiles and hugs and kisses, dine together, play fun games, and do just anything together. It seems impossible right now but I know this will surely happen in God’s time. Yes, please, Lord Jesus, fill our family with love. Amen.
Wag iwanang tumutulo ang tubig sa gripo. Baka mapuno ang drum at umapaw. Sayang ang tubig, mapapamahal ang bayarin.
Wag hayaang malakas ang apoy sa sinaing. Pag kumulo, hinaan agad ang apoy. Baka kasi malimutan, sunog na yung ilalim, yung ibabaw di pa na-in-in. Sayang ang kanin – malata yung ibabaw, mapait yung ilalim.
Bantayan kasi, wag basta pabayaan.
Parang puso lang yan. Dapat binabantayan. Wag bubuksan tapos hahayaan lang, go-with-the-flow, “akong bahala” ang peg. Sabi babantayan daw, pero pag nalingat at nalibang, nalimutan na ang pangako sa sarili. Saka makakaalala kapag marami nang nasayang na oras at emosyon. Wag ganun!
Thank you, Jesus, for what you have shown to me today.
Thank you that you have my true heart’s desire in mind and work in me so that I can truly love and serve you and others. Amen.
